Edgewood’s Lorraine Gregory Communications has partnered with Huntington Station’s Aurora Productions.
Officials from both companies say the merger complements their range of comprehensive offerings. LGC brings its full range of design and marketing services and also produces the show “Ask A CEO” hosted by the company’s co-founder and CEO, Greg Demetriou. The show is also available on Greg’s Corner Office’s YouTube channel and via podcast. Aurora will provide film and video production services for television shows, documentaries, and advertisers such as 1-800-Flowers, the Island Federal Credit Union, Kozy Shack, and Cambridge Pavingstones, according to a press release regarding the merger.
“Not only is Rich the absolute pro, he’s easy to work with,” said LGC President Greg Demetriou and Benjamin “Jay” Demetriou in a joint statement.
“I feel excited about the opportunities,” said Aurora Rich Poggioli, who served as president of Aurora Productions, in a statement.
“Working with LGC was a given,” he added. “The early support I received here allows me to think about the future and see where we can improve so many of the film and video marketing programs that have been assigned to us. The crew is ready to shoot in the studio I love or on location. “
Poggioli serves as the company’s Director of Video Services. In this role, he oversees all video projects and manages the New York State certified film production studios, including the 3,500 square foot studio and the green screen studio.
Gina Del Vicario, LGC Vice President, takes on the task of connecting the two companies and their cultures.
Meanwhile, “the company continues to grow and mature as a leading marketing agency,” Jay Demetriou said in a statement. “With every important step, every expansion and addition, LGC has firmly placed our flag on the market.”
